Admission Policy

We are now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 school year. Please contact the Admissions Department to schedule a tour at (310) 840-0500.

 

Park Century maintains a policy of limited enrollment and selective admissions, recognizing that there is a range of students that the School serves best. The goal of the admissions process at Park Century is to determine that the child’s needs will be served most appropriately by attending the School.

Park Century School has a rolling admissions policy, so there is no application deadline. Placements are made based on available space once the applicant is determined to be an appropriate fit for the School.

There are several steps to the admission process. It begins with a guided tour of the School. Visits are by appointment only. At the conclusion of the tour, you will be provided with an application upon request.
 
Applications to the School will need to include the following:
 
  • Complete psychoeducational or neuropsychological reports, including a Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC V) administered within the past 12 months.
  • Relevant medical information.
  • Educational records and reports.
  • Other pertinent information such as school district IEP’s (if applicable), speech and language evaluations, tutoring reports, and optometric reports.
 
Once the applications are received, the Admissions Team reviews the materials, and depending upon the decision of that review, the Admissions Director arranges an initial meeting for the parents with the Admissions Team. Prior to this meeting, it is requested that parents submit Application Part II which is a developmental history of the child.

 
At the conclusion of the Parent Admissions Meeting a time is scheduled for the student candidate to visit the School, meet the Admissions Team and spend time in a classroom with a student "Buddy". Special care is taken during these visits to reduce anxiety and create a welcoming atmosphere for the visiting student.

 
Lastly, an additional meeting is scheduled between the parents and the Admissions Team to discuss an appropriate program plan to fit the student's needs. A decision is then made whether to enroll the student at Park Century School.

 
Park Century School does not discriminate in its admissions policies because of race, sex, color, creed or national origin.
